The Fantasy Life Underdog Tracker is the place to go to find free analysis and picks for Underdog Fantasy’s Pick’em contests for the NFL season. Every week, our analysts will list their best Underdog pick’em plays on the tracker and provide reasoning and analysis for their picks.

Underdog pick’em contests work by having users combine two or more props together into one ticket. Props on Underdog come in two categories: higher/lower (player totals) or rivals (head-to-head player matchups).
The payouts increase as the number of props you include on your ticket grows. Every week these contests will have a full gamut of NFL player props available for you to use and create pick’em tickets.
During the season, the team at Fantasy Life will look for their best higher/lower, and rivals plays and give you pick’em tickets to use or follow in the Underdog Pick’em Tracker.
As the season wears on, you’ll also have a chance to track the Underdog plays while our team continues to churn out new ideas every week.
What is Underdog Pick’em
As mentioned above, Underdog’s Pick’em feature allows users to build prop-based multiplier tickets with specific payouts attached – which get bigger as you add more plays to your ticket.
The payout options on Pick’em are set for players beforehand and are quite simple to understand. Payouts in Underdog’s pick’em contests involve a ladder format, so the more plays you add to your ticket, the bigger the payout becomes.
- Two-play cards (pick two) = 3-1 payout
- Three-play cards (pick three) = 6-1 payout
- Four-play cards (pick four) = 10-1 payout
- Five-play cards (pick five) = 20-1 payout
From time to time, Underdog will also offer bonuses for their pick’em contests, such as increased multipliers or boosts, which increase the payout of your ticket. They may also offer bonuses in the form of reduced higher/lower totals. In these offerings, one side of a higher/lower becomes far more likely to hit, making it a massively +EV play for Underdog users.
The two types of plays available in Underdog pick’em are described below:
Higher/Lower: The Higher/Lower Pick’em offerings are simply asking us to decide whether a player will land higher or lower in a game (or season) than his specific player total.
If Patrick Mahomes has a 299.5 passing total in the higher/lower offerings, then to add him to your card, you would simply select higher or lower on his total, depending on whether or not you think he can pass for 300 or more passing yards on the day.
Rivals: The Rivals Pick’em offerings ask us to decide if a player will outperform (or underperform) another player on the slate that day. Oftentimes these picks will include a handicap attached to one of the players.
So, if Mahomes and Josh Allen were matched up in a rivals passing yardage matchup, you would simply select which player you think will throw for more yards in their respective game that week (while keeping in mind any handicap that Underdog has added to the matchup).
